To control this view, one must do the following within the course:
Find and open the course in question. From the user menu, select ‘ Edit settings ’ Within the ‘ General ’ settings for the course/class, locate the following:
Course start date and Course end date . The 'Course start date' should already have a date applied. However, if this course is meant to be taught later ( Future ) or has already been taught and you want it to organize it as a past course, this is where you make the adjustment. Simply alter the date to reflect how you want it to appear and once you click ‘ save ’ (scroll to the bottom and select save), the effect will take place immediately. For the current ( In progress ) course, be sure to apply an ‘end date’ For the Future courses – once again, be sure to apply both the start and end dates for past courses, apply an end date that would occur before the current term.
